I saw some of these for sale at my school a little while ago, but they sold out before i could buy a pair. So, armed with only $10, i made my own pair.

I drilled a hole in the middle of each thimble, and threaded them onto a jewelery pin. I put a round little bead in between the thimbles, to keep them nicely spaced.

They jingle like crazy, so don't make 'em unless you don't mind jingle bells ringling in your ears all day.  Tongue

Those are so cute!   =)   
You could prob put a thin strip of felt on the inside of the thimbles to keep them from being so tink-ly.

Cute! I want to make some with just one thimble on each ear. And even though I'm not going to be making the ones that jingle, I do have earrings that I made out of jingle bells and I don't mind them!
